A couple in love. Romantic clich??

A couple in love. Romantic clich??

I asked the members of our Church, Kensington Temple, to take part in a survey of the emotional needs of both men and women and I present the results here. I simply asked that each person write down the one thing that they most looked for in the opposite sex. The responses were then gathered into groups and the results can be seen below, ranked in order of popularity.
The results reveal that what a man most wants from a woman is love, support and respect. What a woman most wants from a man is love, communication and friendship. And you, what do you most want from a man/woman?
